Agree

Two ideas 

1) How about  ‘       For non-reversable transactions…

and/or

2)    “a preview option is available"


That way it isnt done for things where the person can

To be honest if they did it would reduce the effect of them asking for confirmations of truly catastrophic operations. This meets WCAG today as you can simply change or delete the data to undo the operation if required - but it would not meet this new standard.

> The purpose of this SC is to provide users with a chance to review the data they input before they complete a transaction.  We feel that validation and other automatic error checking is covered in other SC but that some errors can only be caught by user review. Examples of errors that can’t be caught by a machine include when a user picks Berlin, New Hampshire instead of Berlin, Germany or when the button is hit twice and the final count in a purchase is higher than intended. This SC should codify what is already common practice on most sites by requiring a site present a summary of the information for review before the user commits.
